Free and Equal: An Australian Conversation on Human Rights
8:30 am - 5:00 pm
The Hyatt Regency 161 Sussex Street, Sydney, NSW , 2000
**This is not a QAI event**
QAI will be attending the conference held by The Australian Human Rights Commission in Sydney. The conference will focus on what we want our human rights protection to look like in 21st century Australia, with VIP guest and keynote speaker, Michelle Bachelet, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
It is time for us to talk about the Australia that we want to live in, and how we want our rights and freedoms protected. There are great opportunities ahead for human rights protection in Australia, but also great challenges. How do we balance competing rights in a complex legal landscape? How do we keep improving protections for vulnerable Australians? How do we find common ground on human rights in a diverse Australia?
In December 2018 the Australian Human Rights Commission President, Emeritus Professor Rosalind Croucher, announced the launch of a national conversation on human rights to explore all these questions and more. The Free and Equal conference is the centerpiece of this conversation and a once-in-a-decade event. It will take stock of the themes emerging from Australian voices and allow us to hear from human rights experts, industry and community leaders on how we can advance human rights into the 21st Century.
